Purple & Black 2- tone Banana Seat- Model no. 727 TAIHEI
For sale a Wild Purple & Black Banana Seat. On the bottom is marked “ Model no 727 TAIHEI Japan”.
This deluxe vinyl seat is 19” long and was made in the late 60’s until early 70’s.
It was on a 68 20” Schwinn that I bought but it could have come off another bike like the Sears Screamer of an Iverson Road Runner or could have been just bought as a custom seat. Interesting is TAIHEI was known to make some seats for the early 70’s Schwinn bikes. Should fit Stingray, Junior, most bikes etc.
I had to have the post mounting bracket on the bottom pan welded as the rivets were loose, but its strong and solid now.
I also have the 24” sissy bar that was with the seat if needed but it does have a small kink in it, very similar to the early Stingray sissy bars.
The deluxe seat does have 3 wear spots , one on the nose and the other two on the sides were the sissy bar chafes up against the eyelet areas- (sissy bar covers the wear marks)—see pics.
Price : $70.00 with the sissy bar and $60.00 for just the seat.
